Most dieticians are requested to

this is that the University can

them room in lieu of salary.

A major complaint in dormitories
is food runs out too early, or it is
not hot enough.
The dorms themselves have lim-
ited facilities. West Quad, for in-
stance has its kitchens in the base-
ment and dining rooms above. Food
must be transported by a slow
freight elevator, giving it a chance
to cool.
However, the business staff has
recently co-operated with student
committees and several menu
changes have already been made.
The administration is now work-
ing on a choice menu program.
According to Schaadt, there might
be choice menus in the near fu-

ironed out.

The invention of the automo-
bile marked the end of the horse
and buggy era.
But a little of that age still lives
in the D. J. Mallory Harness Shop
in Ann Arbor. -
In an old building a grey haired
man still makes harnesses and
saddles for the vanishing number
of work and saddle horses in lower
M al l o r y has witnessed the
change to auto.
"I've seen a lot of things change
but still I kind of like the pld
times better," he reiinisced.
Once harness .making was a
booming business. In 1891, when
Mallory's father started the shop,
there were four r five other har-
rness shops in Ann Arbor. All of
them have gonie out of business.
Tanned leather of 65 years
hanging from .the walls give his
shop a nostalgic odor.
On either side of the door are
hides waiting to be cut up and
sewed together to make saddlery.
The leathers are of different
thicknesses and stiffnesses to
make .various parts of the har-
nesses and saddles.
In the front of the shop and to
one side hang all lengths of buggy-
and bull-whips. "A lot of young
men buy the bull whips as a stunt.
They just try to learn to make
them pop "
Once these whips were used to
drive teams of oxen across the

'country but now there isn't much
use for .them.
Most of the shop's business
comes from making saddles and
accessories for pleasure horses.
"There are a lot more people who
have a riding horse these days."
Mallory also repairs leather goods.
A lot of hours go into producing
a single saddle ' or harness. The
leather must be cut to size and
shaped before it can be sewed
together. Then any tooling must
be carefully done :y hand.
Not many people iearn to work
-leather these days Mallory says.
"There isn t anyone learning to
be craftsmen these days. Fellows
just go into the factory and run
machines .Tsed to 1e that you had
to start from the bottom and
spend seven or eight gears learn-
ing a traf e, but ncw everyone
xva!nts to start at th" top.'
The day of the horse is paste
and will never return. The 'time
is past when the fields were
plowed by a farmer and a team of
horses, never to come again. But
a harness shop remains a living
reminder of an earlier age.
